This piece was created based off of a photo reference I took last year when preparing for a nocture painting. The Guilford Marina offers many different views, What struck me about this scene was the warm orange glow from the street lights and the rich blue water and sky. There was a slight band of orange to pinks low in the horizon. The Lobster Shack was lit up with bright spotlights almost as bright as the setting sun.
Many years ago I was invited to join a Tuesday night sailing group. There were 15 of us on the boat. I had no clue what I was doing but the crew was so happy to see me show up with a batch of homemade chocolate chip cookies! - This scene reminded me of those time.
This piece along with 17 of my works are on display at Chapter One Restaurant in Guilford, CT - The show is called "Beaches, Boats and Sunsets" it's a collection of my latest works based of the Connecticut coast.
